I like to keep my bunk ends open all season while parked at home, we use the camper to sit in and play board games, listen to music and use it as an extension of the house when not camping.
That said, I like to keep our bunk-ends open all season long and really only close them when traveling. I'm worried that the sun and rain will weaken the canvas and I will have to replace it? is this a valid concern? I've thought about purchasing some reflectix to help protect it, but personally I don't like the way it looks. But I guess if it comes down to deciding to replacing the canvas versus covering them, Reflectix will win.
What does everyone else do?
